What is the Dante® font?

Giovanni Mardersteig started work on Dante after the Second World War, when printing at the Officina Bodoni returned to full production. He drew on his experience of using Monotype Bembo and Centaur to design a new book face with an italic which worked harmoniously with the roman. Originally hand-cut by Charles Malin, it was adapted for mechanical composition by Monotype in 1957.
The new digital version has been redrawn, by Monotype’s Ron Carpenter, free from any restrictions imposed by hot metal technology. It was issued in 1993 in a range of three weights with a set of titling capitals, and is now available from Adobe. More…
Dante is a beautiful book face which can also be used to good effect in magazines and periodicals.

You're probably thinking - Is Dante® available to Download for free?

The short answer is no. Dante® is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project. We showcase fonts on SharedFonts that are almost all premium fonts. Feel free to waste valuable hours of your time searching for a free download of Dante®, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest. Just think how much time and effort you will save if you just pay for Dante® and be done with it.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Dante® is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Dante® and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Dante®. Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Dante® for free.

In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Dante® remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
